I just started taking the drug and I can walk without the aid of a walker, already. I am supposed to take 2x100mg capsules three times a day and I only have it for the day and already it works....I will keep you posted as to the side effects, if any.

It is very effective for the burning, stinging, ant-biting, "frozen numbness" sensations on and in my hands and legs caused by a severe case of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. I take 600mg three times a day. I tried using 300mg three times a day, but had to go back to 600. I even went seven days completely without it. By the end of the seve ... Show Full Comment
